Rogers Insurance Ltd., Schwartz Reliance Insurance announce partnership
Rogers Insurance Ltd. and Schwartz Reliance Insurance are pleased to announce their new partnership.
Schwartz Reliance Insurance purchased the A-WIN Insurance Ltd. Medicine Hat, AB, branch location at the beginning of November. Rogers Insurance, who fully acquired A-WIN Insurance in 2019, has remained dedicated to expanding the organization’s network of community-focused branch partners located across Western Canada.
“We are thrilled to have Schwartz Reliance Insurance join the A-WIN branch partner network,” said Bruce Rabik, Chief Operating Officer, Rogers Insurance. “Their longevity, reputation and dedication to Southern Albertans are impressive. We know they will continue to provide Medicine Hat residents and businesses with exceptional insurance solutions and customer service.”
With this purchase, Medicine Hat maintains a strong, local independent insurance brokerage that prioritizes the needs of its clients. Schwartz Reliance Insurance has been based in Lethbridge, AB, for more than 90 years and the business has grown since the 1980s under the Howe family’s leadership to include business units in Fort Macleod, Claresholm, Vauxhall, Taber, Coaldale and Stettler.
“Our family has independently owned and operated our business for nearly 40 years,” said John Howe, President, Schwartz Reliance Insurance. “To partner with Rogers Insurance—who has been steadfast in expanding and strengthening the independent brokerage model across Canada—was an opportunity we couldn’t pass on. We look forward to building a strong partnership with Rogers Insurance as well as joining the Canadian Broker Network.”
The Canadian Broker Network (CBN) is the leading alliance of independent insurance brokers in the country. Rogers Insurance co-founded CBN in 2002 and serves as an executive member today.
Mitch Holst will now serve as A-WIN Medicine Hat branch partner and lead the existing team of brokers in serving the needs of local residents and businesses. The branch is located at Bay 109, 2201 Box Springs Blvd. NW, Medicine Hat, AB.
